    NATHAN LANE, Actor

    SHOWS: The Producers, Love! Valour! Compassion, Angels in America

    There is no greater representation of modern Broadway than three-time Tony Award winner Nathan Lane. His ability to transition from theatre to film, comedy to drama, tear-inducing laughter to heart-stopping pathos, all in one performance, is comparable to none. Nathan Lane has shared his gifts with audiences in such shows as the revivals of Guys and Dolls, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, The Man Who Came to Dinner, The Odd Couple, Angels in America, and the original productions of Laughter on the 23rd Floor, Love! Valour! Compassion!, The Producers, The Addams Family, November, Gary, and so many more!

    Nathan pulls back the curtain on his career to discuss how Eddie Bracken taught him comedy, what it was like collaborating with Terrence McNally, and why Joe Mantello jilted him for Laurie Metcalf!

    Also, Nathan shines the spotlight on Neil Simon, George C. Scott, and Jerry Zaks!

A Dear Friend Lee Roy!! ,

Great Interviews

Two excellent interviewers and guests from every part of the business we call Show.
Laugh out loud, sing a song from a score, as you learn intimate details about the guest of the week. You may even kick up your heels or shuffle off to Buffalo while you listen to secrets never shared before about some of the friends this weeks guest wishes to reveal. After the show they may be bosom buddies or permanently crossed off the dinner party list for life!!
